Jeff Johns has been a member of Faith Bible Chapel South since its founding in 1986.
Jeff accepted Christ as his Lord at a retreat at Silver Cliffs Young Life Camp near Buena Vista, Colorado in 1969. “I had attended St. James Presbyterian Church for a number of years, but at this particular retreat I asked Jesus to come into my heart,” Jeff says. During Jeff’s first year of college at Stanford University, his relationship with Christ wavered.
“With little Christian fellowship and searching for something to fill the spiritual void, I got into Far Eastern mysticism,” Jeff says. Sophomore year at Stanford brought a radical change to Jeff’s spiritual outlook. “[My rowing coach] became an on-fire born-again believer and began holding Bible studies on campus,” Jeff says. After that, Jeff began to become regularly involved with Bible studies, church services, and other Christians on campus.
Jeff and his late wife, Kitty were married at Faith Bible Chapel International in Arvada in November of 1980. There, they were heavily involved with the Israel ministry, jail visitation ministry, and children’s ministry. In April 1986, the call went out to start a new satellite church in south Denver, what would become Faith Bible Chapel South.
Jeff is currently retired from being employed as a nuclear engineer for Shaw, Stone & Webster. Jeff is involved by leading occasional Sunday School classes, children’s church lessons, and a jail team volunteer at Faith Bible Chapel South.
